Teas For Kids ~ 5 Blends For Tiny Tea Drinkers

teas-for-kids

I love tea. I drink it daily, there’s an entire cupboard in my kitchen dedicated to tea leaves — loose and bagged, my mug collection is enormous, and I have a tattoo dedicated to teacups and doilies. Naturally, my adoration for tea time is something I’ve been passing on to my daughter. Turning five later this month, my daughter loves to sip her tea with me. She enjoys the ritual of getting the kettle ready, adding tea leaves to a tea ball or strainer, or just simple choosing a delicious smelling teabag from our collection.

For littles, caffeinated teas are not my first choice — though she does have a sip of my Earl Grey from time to time. For children, herbal teas can be not only delicious and calming, but offer delightful advantages when kids are battling colds, bellyaches, or just need a mellow moment. We all need those, right?

Here are some tasty teas that are child-friendly and sure to pass the taste-test!

I know my daughter would think this Fairytale Tea by Wildroot Botanicals is pretty special. I adore this shop’s beautiful packaging too!

I love a cup of tea in the morning, or while cozied up in front of our fireplace in the afternoon. Some of my daughter’s favourite teas are peppermint, camomile, and a blend called Dreamland by President’s Choice. She takes her tea with a dollop of honey and sometimes an ice cube to cool it down.

Happy tea time, friends!
